I never really post about gear, but I'm super pleased that I have finally acquired my 3 dream lenses: the Nikkor AF 50mm 1.4D, the Nikkor AF 85mm 1.8*, and the Micro-Nikkor AF 105mm 2.8D. The 50mm is shown here mounted on my Nikon F80. (*I think I would have preferred the D version, but there's hardly … Continue reading I’ve finally got the trifecta!
Hello, long time no speak 🙂 I finally got some slide film cross processed! The first roll was some expired Fuji Velvia 100F, that I shot with my Canon A1 during a bright, sunny day. Pretty sure I shot this at box speed (one of my resolutions in 2018 is to take more notes when … Continue reading Experiments with xpro

Well, I decided to go a different way with an expired roll of Fuji Superia 200 that I shot recently. Back in my film-shooting "heyday" (about 2009 until … Continue reading Expired Film Magic

It was one of many rolls I received years ago from an expired film job lot … Continue reading Canon AV-1 + Super HD200 film
This roll was shot @ ISO 50, and the negatives were developed and scanned by Photo Express, my favourite photo lab EVER.

Consider this a short photo essay I guess? Or an introduction, a taster of what is to come. Thinking about doing an actual project to document the park, revisiting the same spots throughout several seasons to see how they change. All these photos were shot with my Nikon D300 and edited with the VSCO app … Continue reading Beckenham Place Park – an intro
